Stitching Right Along & A Couple of Freebies

Good, good morning!!!!! Hope this finds each and everyone one of you richly blessed!!

Wow, where does the time go! Flies by me, that's for sure!! But I have been pretty busy with all my normal activities and even have gotten in quite a bit of stitching time.

My first UFO flimsy finish for the year!! My CWR sampler that was a BB SAL in 2011.



I am so very, very pleased with the results!! My plan is to machine quilt it for a fall quilt for our bed. The first I've made for that purpose in 14 years! It will be fun to have seasonal bed quilts!!

Now to the Freebies. I've done a little cleaning out and found a couple of items that I'm offering to whomever wants them. Just leave a comment and let me know. If more than one person wants them, I will have a drawing in a few days.

QUILT JOURNAL:

I bought this a few years ago and just haven't ever used it - so I want to pass it on to someone who will!!
It measures about 8.5" square and has 95 pages - so plenty of room to document your quilts.



SUNFLOWERS:

This is a wool yarn needlework project that was in my MIL's belongings. It has never been opened and looks in excellent condition.



If anyone has any questions about either item, just email me and I'll answer ASAP.

I just knew I would find something beautiful that you had been doing. I clicked and enlarge the sampler quilt top, it is beyond beautiful.
Your word joyful for the year is off to a good start.

Stunning! Did you send a link to BB? You really did a wonderful job with this. I agree with Janet - such warm, rich colors. Perfect for fall. Thanks, but I'll pass on the freebies. Would you send some of that sunshine this way?!?!

Wonderful quilt Doniene!!! I just love sampler quilts :*) There's so much for the eye to see. What a great idea! I love seasonal quilts too, although so far I don't have any for our bed either. I have made a few for the walls, but I suppose I need to get busy and make a few for our bed.
